Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… Oh My!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

There’s nothing like a good chocolate chip cookie… unless of course, if it’s super-sized and more than an inch thick. So when I found this recipe from my aunt’s Nestle Classic Recipes Cookbook a while back, I knew it was a must-make. Serve it warm, with ice cream, with syrup… and with caution… because you’ll definitely want another slice.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… oh my!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans
Serve with ice cream (optional)

  • Preheat oven 325 degrees F.
  • Beat eggs in large mixer bowl on high until foamy.
  • Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter.
  • Stir in morsels and nuts and spoon into pie shell.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm.

Recipe from Nestle Classic Recipes, 2003
* If using frozen pie shell, use deep dish style and thaw completely. Bake on baking sheet and increase baking time slightly.

My husband saw me looking at this entry and drooled.1402.03. 0 If another woman showed up at our door with one of these pies right now, I’m convinced he’d follow her anywhere. Maybe I’ll make it for his birthday.

Heavens to Betsy Ross! Now my computer screen’s all covered in drool (again).

Too yummy for words. And the “Oh My” is hilarious.

Just for the record, 1402.03. 0 is code for… A small spider scurried across the arrow keys and I tried to scoop it up. (from my earlier post)

I gain weight just looking at your photos. This one made me 5 lbs heavier in just 30 seconds. I need a Bakerella diet but can’t control myself.

That looks AMAZING!! Have you had (or seen) the chocolate chip cookie lava cake from Red Lobster? Its so insanely good!! I’ll have to try this and see if it will be a make it at home version.

You are simply amazing.
I just brought my receptionist in to show her the pics on your blog!!
That pie looks amazing and I will definately be making it someday.
I like recipes that don’t have a 100 ingredients! Not that there are any with that many, you know what I mean..hehe

candyce – Good luck.

Angela – You guys are funny!

Kerry – I know. Why do these things have to be bad for us.

Oh My GOOD GRAVY!! That looks delicious. I posted last week and made the oreo pops for a cake walk at school. They were such a hit, I just finished making more for my daughter’s first communion party on Sunday. I dipped them in white almond bark with pink drizzles. They will be the most adorable party favors. THANKS!!!

Kacey & Chris said...

This is my favorite cookie recipe, I can’t wait to try it in a big fat chocolatey pie, and the ice cream will just topp it off. Try making as just cookis and make ice cream sandwiches! It is quite delightful, our families favorite! I love the site too, thanks for the ideas!

April 18, 2008 04:52 AM

That looks delicious! Probably easier than fighting with 4 hot cookie sheets and two little girls trying to touch them all as I pull them out!

Do you think a graham cracker crust would work for this recipe?

It looks good but I am not a pie crust fan. Just thought I’d throw that out there…

This is so funny…my mom just made this – she calls it Tollhouse Pie! I had just checked my e-mail and found the recipe and then checked your blog to see it on the screen! Must be the season for it! This stuff is amazing. She puts it in a chocolate pie crust for even more amazingness. :-)

Tartelette – yes sireee!

Kendalls Mom 3 – No doubt!

Bridget – Thanks!

Otter – thanks

The only thing that is terrible about this blog, is the fact that my coworkers and I just started a 3 week long pact of no treats. Unless it’s homemade on someone’s birthday.

I really hope someone makes it for someones birthday because it’s beautiful. I think that is strongly attributed to your beautiful photos.

regan said...

I so wanted this recipe to be good, it’s my husband’s two favorite things mixed together. But the pie has been in the over now for 90 minutes and the top is brown, but the insides are still liquid. So sad :(

April 21, 2008 01:10 AM
Bakerella said...

Suzyhomemaker – I know. It has that effect.

Patti – thanks a bunch.

dessertobsessed – like I said, it has that effect…

regan – that is sad. And your husband probably is too. I’m sorry it’s not working for you. I’ve made it several times without any trouble. Maybe it will still be ok even after the extended oven time.

Stephanie said...

I just made this tonight. HOLY HALLELUJAH!!! It was incredible! I think my husband fell in love with me all over again.

I had some pastry left from the trimmings when I lined my pie shell, so I made a little mini pie in a 4-oz. ramekin, scooping a little bit of the cookie filling in. It baked for about 45 minutes along with the pie and it was great!

April 23, 2008 03:43 AM
Bakerella said...

stephanie – I’m glad to hear they turned out so good in the small size. I wanted to make some minis from this recipe, but I haven’t tried yet. Thanks for the info.

Okay, you have so many (well deserved!) comments already, but I have to say that looks SO amazing! I may have found my birthday cake here. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite thing next to cake, and I think I’ve just found a little bit of both!

Thank you for posting this recipe, along with those amazing pictures (they truly made my mouth water)! My husband is a HUGE chocolate chip cookie fan so I made this for him last night. Not only was it super simple to make but it was over the top yummy! Although my pants aren’t fitting quite the same today, it was totally worth it. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Oh man, when I saw this I had to make it, and I told my mom I was going to. She told me she’d tried to make it years before, but it just turned out like liquid in the center. The same happened to me. :-\ I put it back in for another 45 minutes, and it’s still fairly wet in the center (but the tops and such are now hard and semi-burnt). No idea what we both (and another commenter, I saw) did wrong!

May 9, 2008 05:57 PM
Bakerella said...

Marla – you’re welcome! you’re welcome! you’re welcome!

nicole – I don’t know either unless your eggs were not beaten enough “until foamy” or maybe your butter was too soft. Did you let it get to room temp or too much, like melted butter? Also did you preheat the oven enough?

May 10, 2008 02:24 AM

Thanks for posting the recipe. I made one for my co-workers birthday yesterday and it looked so delicious, I had to make another for my husband. I love that it only has like, 6 ingredients as well!

Erin said...

Should I use salted butter, or unsalted? The salt in butter issue has led to my baking downfall before, so I want to make sure to do this correctly.

June 19, 2008 01:06 PM
Bakerella said...

mistress of the dark – enjoy

erin – the recipe didn’t specify. I’m pretty sure I used salted though. Make sure your eggs are beaten until foamy.

June 20, 2008 12:05 AM
Cammi said...

wah! this looks so good on your blog, but i just tried it and it didn’t work..

it was completely liquid throughout the entire pie. :tears: it still tasted good, but it was soupy –

how long do you beat your eggs for?

i guess my butter was too soft, because i did melt it in the microwave until softened, but it was pretty runny when i dumped it in.

any ideas?

June 30, 2008 08:32 PM
Bakerella said...

Cammi – sounds like your butter was too soft and I did beat my eggs for a while. The batter was actually pretty thick when I poured it in the pie shell. Next time let it set out on the counter to get to room temp. That way you won’t accidentally get it too soft.

July 1, 2008 12:25 AM
Cammi said...

yay! thank you, i am off to try it again right now :)

the butter is super soft, all by itself on the counter…

I adore your website, you are wonderful!

To all those who had trouble with the liquid pie issue:
when i took mine out to test it after an hour, it was still really watery but i couldn’t wait so i took it out and let it cool and after a while it solidified and it was fabu! i suspect the butter was the culprit for me too so next time i make this (and there WILL be a next time!) i may skimp on the butter a tad and make sure i let it cool overnight so it can really set. i had a liquidy piece last night and a hard piece this morning and they were both devilishly delicious…

August 2, 2008 01:48 PM
Bakerella said...

Jen – Hope you enjoyed it.

Sharee Forman – cool. I was going to do that, so I’m glad to know it works.

PheMom – you’ll love it.

Elizabeth Shapiro – so glad you like it. How soft was your butter when you added it? I wonder if it melted too much.
